The rug is the design cornerstone of any room, so choose one carefully. Careful, though, does not mean a big, bland beige rectangle. Have fun with your choice while at the same time avoiding any regrets by picking a patterned but subtly shaded rug. Look for hues that echo the color scheme of the room; or, if you're designing a room from scratch, choose the rug first, then use it as a departure point for the rest of the space.
